In the News...
Foothill College International Night 2013, one of the largest multicultural events at Foothill, is coming this spring. We invite you to join us in making this one-night-only extravaganza an exciting success by attending the first International Night Planning Committee Feb. 12 from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Hearthside Lounge (Room 2313).
International Night is one of the biggest annual multicultural events on campus that welcomes more than 500 guests from the campus and local community. This event is organized and run entirely by students. When you participate in the event's planning process, you'll learn real, meaningful leadership skills as you make new friends. We also want you to participate on the committee if you have a performing art talent that you'd like to showcase. Help us to make this year's International Night a huge success.
Join the Planning Committee
At the meeting, we will discuss the different positions available and sign up volunteers for each committee. If you are interested in serving as a committee chairperson, be prepared to give a two-minute speech that details why you would like the position and what you would contribute to the event to ensure its success.
You can join the student-run and organized planning committee, which is made up of the following task-related committees:
- Marketing Committee (marketing/advertising the event, including managing the website and Facebook page, designing promotional materials, PR, etc.);
- Performance Committee (organizing and conducting auditions, emcee auditions, backstage, developing the theme, working with performers, etc.); and
- Fashion Show Committee (recruiting models and costumes, designing the fashion show, etc.).
- Volunteers are also needed in other positions such as secretary, master of ceremonies (emcee), stage manager, audio-visual technician, videographer and many others.
The Planning Committee will also decide dates and locations for its remaining meetings.
